Item #: 308
Zones: 3a to 10b
Height: 30" tall
Origin: United States
Selected as the 1998 Perennial Plant of the Year, this seed strain of our US native was selected by Sweden's Magnus Nilsson for its vibrant pinkish purple color and strongly horizontal petal formation. In spring, the small rosettes of narrow green leaves unfurl, then in midsummer give rise to 30" spikes ending in 3-4" wide purple petalled, black-eyed Susan-type flowers... one of the absolutely finest flowers for the summer garden.
